When Should You Bring Your Infant to the Dentist?

Young baby with blue eyesParents often ask us when they should bring their infant to the dentist for the very first time, but the answer is simple: as soon as their first tooth comes through is when you should schedule their first appointment. Our dental professionals like to see children at an early age, as it allows us to monitor the healthy development of their mouth (including teeth and soft tissues) from the very beginning. Early exposure also helps your child to develop a positive attitude toward seeing the dentist, serving to prevent dental anxiety and phobia down the track.

Your Child’s First Dental Appointment

Our oral hygienist, Kat Rigg, is highly experienced in working with children. In fact, she’s a mum of three herself! Littlies love visiting her for a check-up, as she makes their experience both positive and fun. We create a happy experience by giving them a ride on the chair, ‘counting’ their teeth, and rewarding them with a sticker for opening wide. If they are upset, that’s okay, as we can usually still do a check-up as they open wide to cry! We will also discuss optimal oral health and diet practices with you and answer any questions you may have. At the end of their appointment, children are also given a dental ‘goodie bag’ to take home, complete with all of the oral hygiene necessities they love.
